Brewery Ommegang introduces Pale Sour Ale Collaboration

24 April 2017

(COOPERSTOWN, NY) Brewery Ommegang welcomes a remarkable new year-round beer this month. Pale Sour is a 6.9% ABV mixed fermentation sour beer developed by Ommegang’s brewmaster Phil Leinhart, and the master blenders at their sister brewery, Liefmans, in Oudenaarde, Belgium.

“Pale Sour is an elegant, drinkable sour beer, unique in that it’s not wood-aged. It has a well-balanced blend of sweet and sour,” says Ommegang’s brewmaster, Phil Leinhart. “Liefmans is such a historic, iconic brewery and having the opportunity to work with them has been an honor and very enjoyable.”

Pale Sour begins with a mixed culture fermentation in open copper vats. Aged over several months in stainless tanks, master blenders blend new batches with older ones until the optimal balance of flavors is reached.

A beer that drinks much like a fine white wine, Pale Sour pours a bright golden hue with a brilliant white head. The flavor is an elegant interplay of sweet and sour and the mouthfeel is soft with a delicate body and clean finish.

Pale Sour’s balanced acidity is a perfect accompaniment to a charcuterie board and a tasty contrast to rich, fatty foods. Try pairing with duck, ribeye, blue cheese, and rich chocolate desserts. Pale Sour is best served in a Teku glass which will prevent the beer from warming in hands.--

Available in 12 oz. four-packs and on draft at the brewery beginning Saturday, April 29, Pale Sour will also be available in select Ommegang retailers within the brewery’s distribution footprint.
